3 star Hotel Mestre

Viale Paolucci 5 Marghera - Mestre

DIRECTIONS: It's really easy to reach the Hotel and Hostel Colombo for backpackers since it's just a stone throw from the railway station of Venice Mestre (exit following marghera direction): once outside the train station just walk straight on the street and you will see the Hotel Colombo in front of you!

Being so close to the station you will always have plenty of public transports to easily reach Venice in less than 15 minutes. Also during the night there are both frequent trains and bus to go from the Hotel Colombo to Venice Historic Center.

If you arrive from the Marco Polo Venice Airport please take the bus number 15 and get off at Marghera stop, just in front of the Hotel Colombo!

Hostel for backpackers : a bed to sleep, a bathroom for 4 people - which is great, a coffee in the morning for one euro, some couches to stay in dead hours with a book or a bottle in the evening, Venice by train or by bus anytime of day and night (less than 30 minutes). Just perfect for travellers.

My wife and I needed a place to sleep for two nights with a decent bathroom. We needed to be withing walking distance of the railway terminus. Columbo gave us exactly what we needed. We would definitely use it again.

The hotel was quite good in quality-price relation. very close to the bus stop and the Mestre train station. The only problem was the Fire alarm! During 2 of the 4 nights i stayed, the fire alarm turned on at 3:00 am, which was quite annoying.

The worst hotel in my life! - Oldest and dirtiest room ever - in the middle of the night the fire alarm started to ring for 10 minutes without reasons - The owner asked one euro more of "TAX of stay"

Pro's: - The price (Colombo is one of the handful of hostels in the Venice area) - Relavitly clean (although the shower curtain hadn’t seen a washing machine in a while) - Free, fast wifi in the lobby - Very close to the train station and a bus stop (line 6 for daytime and N1/N2 for night-time use) that will take you to Venice in 15mn - Being located in a modern, boring area, you’ll appreciate even more Venice’s magnificience. Con's: - Soul-less hostel - Located in a dead, residential area: For a drink/bite, if you’re dead tired, head south through Via Rizzardi toward Piazza del Municipo (Marghera town hall) where some human life can be witnessed; If you still have some mojo left, go back to the station and walk north about 800m through either Via Piave or Via Cappuccina where the center of Mestre is located with a shopping center, a nice piazza (Ferretto), and a good choice of cafés and restaurants.

Pleasant place to stay, location wasn't great but still only took a 10-15 bus vide to get onto the island (bus is right across the road from the hotel). Staff weren't over friendly but still helped out when needed. Room was good, however wifi only worked downstairs in the common area. Breakfast was fairly average. Still a nice stay

I found the hotel to be acceptable for what it is. I found most of the staff to be friendly and helpful. However, there was a male staff member that was difficult to approach and did not offer complete information, i.e., there is a TV in the room. When asked about accessing the TV, was told, "There's no TV." However, there is a charge that I was not told about. Also, since people stay here from all over the world, I found the same staff member to make fun of some cultures in a language that was not understood by the clientele. Overall, the stay was acceptable. Access to Venice was better than expected by bus in front of the hotel.

Good hotel for a good price. It is close to the motorway, ideal for people arriving by car, you can't miss it. Bus station within 100 metre, direct line to Venice. We really enjoyed staying in Hostel Colombo.Thanks guys I'll see you next time
